IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

ICC\SCC Whitelist BP events

IBM Control Center (ICC) BP Inclusion\Exclusion

Version - build September 29 2017 11:21

ICC provides the ability to monitor business processes (BPs) and then configure if we want to include\exclude them. This allows someone to define to monitor in ICC only what BP's we wish to monitor. The architecture is that the system will by default monitoring everything but then ONLY exclude what you select to exclude. This means that we in essence have to define what we want to exclude and the more we exclude, the slower it performs as it must check the exclusion list at each monitor step. We have tested and have evidence that excluding close to the maximum number of BP's will in fact slow down processing.

We wish to have an ICC change so we can explicitly select what to include (whitelist) or exclude (blacklist) without impacting performance. We are fine to accept a solution requiring to manually build a configuration file on a server to accomplish this and do not need an interface level ability if that makes this quicker to create.

    With the latest versions of ICC and B2Bi, users may now select just the BPs to be monitored, as opposed to just the BPs to NOT be monitored.
